Description from owner


Welcome to Top of the Rock in the beautiful Bald Rock Community, part of the Sapphire Valley Resort area. WE ARE PET FRIENDLY! BRING YOUR HORSES! Our quaint, yet modern mountain cabin sits on 3.5 wooded acres at 4200 feet of elevation and boasts stunning long-range mountain views from nearly every room. Situated at the end of a quiet private road, the cabin features open-concept living, a fully equipped kitchen, three bedrooms, and two full bathrooms. The home is easily accessible in all weather and 4WD is not necessary.

Our goal is to provide a FIRST-CLASS and CONCIERGE LIKE mountain vacation experience- we don't just provide you with a place to stay. We pride ourselves on helping guests plan the perfect mountain getaway by offering our personal recommendations for places to see, things to do, and the best places to shop and eat!

TOP OF THE ROCK is our brand new vacation rental offering and we took our first reservations in October 2017.We have another property called ONCE UPON A STREAM, also in Sapphire, NC and just a few miles from Top of the Rock. Please be sure to check out our FlipKey listing ID 7177398 and read the wonderful reviews so you can get a feel for how we treat our guests and the type of experiences we can provide. After hosting nearly 50 unique families in less than 18 months across all the major booking sites, we are very excited to introduce our new mountain property just in time for LEAF SEASON!

Whether you are looking for a cozy cabin atop Bald Rock with stunning mountain views, or an intimate English mountain cottage tucked in the woods with a rushing mountain stream right in the back yard, let us help you fall in love with the mountains of western North Carolina!

All Top of the Rock guests have access to the Sapphire Valley Resort amenities including golf, tennis, skiing and tubing (in the winter months), zip-line, three pools (one indoor heated), hot tub, saunas, game room, arcade, mini-golf, playground, running track, playing fields, and much more!

Bald Rock is a very special mountain community that sits high above beautiful Sapphire Valley, North Carolina. Situated at the peak of our namesake mountain, the gated grounds encompass 778 acres divided into 120 mountain home sites. The property contains numerous creeks and waterfalls, a rare mountain bog, and 9.2 miles of hiking and equestrian trails. Of special interest to nature lovers, Bald Rock borders the spectacular U.S Forest Panthertown Valley Backcountry Area. In the words of the Forest Service: Panthertown Valley, referred to as the Yosemite of the East, lies on the eastern continental divide in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains. With more than 25 miles of designated trails in this 6,300 acre backcountry area visitors can enjoy deep gorges and broad valleys, mountain bogs and granitic rock domes, tranquil creeks and plunging waterfalls while hiking, biking or horseback riding. Bald Rock owners enjoy direct access to this mountain wonderland by virtue of a connecting Forest Service trail that is approved for hikers, bikers and horses. Speaking of horses, Bald Rock offers the finest equestrian center in the mountains. Our independently managed Equestrian Center has sixteen 12' x 12' full stalls in two barns, plus a separate isolation stall. The center contains 3 hot/cold water wash areas (one inside), nine pastures, one paddock, two training pens, and a 100' x 200' riding arena. The independent Barn Manger offers complete care of horses, lessons, and training. Bald Rock was developed by Westmark Development Corporation of Dubuque, IA in 1995. Westmark President Dave Bauer took a great personal interest in each roadway, trail, & every homesite, and dreamed of Bald Rock becoming the "Gem of the Mountains". He spent months hiking through the forest to develop what has become one of the finest communities in the Western North Carolina Mountains. Dave claims to have worn out two pairs of hiking boots, 1 Jeep, and 1 ATV! Located on the 3500 to 4200 foot ridge line of the Blue Ridge Mountains, we enjoy great weather year round, with very cool summers and occasional brief but lovely snows in the winter. Between the Barn Center and the Pavilion at The Divide at Bald Rock (our sister community), we have dozens of activities during the summer season. Bald Rock is part of the Sapphire Valley Resort system which offers 2 golf courses, eight Har-Tru tennis courts, indoor & outdoor swimming, whirlpool, sauna, steam room, fitness room and game room. In addition to the nature center and planned activities (kids summer camp also) at the Community Building, you can sail, canoe, swim and fish on the 55 acres Lake Fairfield. During the winter visit the ski lodge with its ski slopes and recent snow tubing. Bald Rock is located just a few minutes from the quiet friendly town of Cashiers, NC.
